This is an easy treat, that is really good. It could also be done on the grill......
- Put oven on broil.
- Cut banana in half length-wise, but keep the skin on.
- spread peanut butter between sides, sprinkle w/chocolate chips.
- Squeeze together and cover with foil.
- Put under broiler for 30 minutes or until banana is soft.
- *Could also be done on the grill, if you wrap in foil*.
With only one lone nanna in the house, I decided I just had to try this recipe. Now, I'm wishing there were more nannas, because it's a heavenly treat! However, I skipped the peanut butter. If I had some almond butter, I definitely would have used it, so that will be for the next time for sure! I also shortened the time in the oven 1/2 because of the other comments and 1/2 because I was impatient. :D Thanks for your submission...it will be used faithfully around here. Looking forward to making one for my son when he gets back from his dad's.
I think 30 minutes was a bit too long - at least my banana turned very mushy. Next time I would take it out sooner as I didn't like the texture of how mushy it became. Also think I would put more PB and choc chips in. Think I skimped a bit, and it would have tasted better with more of the good stuff! But overall a nice little treat.
I love these! We used to make these in Girl Scouts, but they were also sprinkled with mini marshamllows and called "Banana Boats"...wrapped in foil and put on the campfire
